This restaurant is located overlooking the Boston Tea Party Museum. It is a large restaurant, somewhat lacking in atmosphere. The steaks were pretty good and cooked as ordered but the menu was quite pricey without any special wow factor. The service was attentive.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
